Tickets, anyone?

This is a new slant on restaurants.  A new, called Next, is scheduled to open in Chicago later this year.  It's from the owners of Allnea, also in Chicago, and will feature quarterly menus based on different regions of the world.

Most interestingly, the restaurant will sell tickets, instead of reservations.  You pay in advance, and just like the theatre or a sporting event, if you don't go, there's no refund.  This is how they describe it:
Your tickets will be fully inclusive of all charges, including service. Ticket price will depend on which seating you buy -- Saturday at 8 PM will be more expensive than Wednesday at 9:30 PM. This will allow us to offer an amazing experience at a very reasonable price. We will also offer an annual subscription to all four menus at a discount with preferred seating.
A new concept.  Wonder how it will work.
